Memorial Hermann Medical Missions was organized in 1999 to respond to the needs of people impacted by inadequate medical and dental care outside the United States. A goal of Medical Missions is to facilitate the sending of medical personnel, equipment, and supplies to underserved countries. We do this through providing financial assistance to Memorial Hermann employees participating in medical mission trips. We also purchase and send medical supplies to facilitate delivery of care on those trips. In addition, Medical Missions assists communities harmed by disasters both within and outside the United States.
